Wip Wednesday – Fabric Stacks and Yummy Quilt Projects

Yesterday I spent most of the day playing with fabric and it was quite delightful! I pulled and prepped (wash with color catchers, damp dry, iron with starch) all of my fabrics for several upcoming projects. First up is my Modern Trees QAL which starts next week.

Modern Trees

Modern Trees Fabric Pull

I chose mostly Kona Solids with one Moda Bella Solids Aqua. I decided to go with a cream solid from Free Spirit as the background because I had several yards leftover after cutting out all the Turning Cartwheels kits. It’s a nice yellowy cream and looks great with the teals and greens.

Cut Squares

Cut Squares for Double Chevrons Quilt

Next up, I cut and marked all the squares for the Double Chevron quilt I’m making for my son. I was having quite a zen moment getting lost in the calm repetitiveness of this task.

Finally, I pulled fabric for Angela Pingel’s curved mini class that I’ll be taking at Sewing Summit this weekend. I chose an older Amy Butler print from my stash along with a coordinating solid. (Surprising that I didn’t go with all solids –ย  I know!)

The solid will be my focal point with the print as background. It will be a modern take on a drunkard’s path block so I hope my fabric choices will work well.

I’m bringing all of these projects with me this weekend to Sewing Summit in the hopes of getting quite a bit done. I am way excited that there is lots of open sewing time during the retreat. If you are looking for me – I’ll be the one under a pile of fabric trees and HST’s!

    I super duper LOVE that orange and cream Amy Butler print that you have there! Do you know if that is still available anywhere, or do you have some for sale? I would so so much love to buy some! I am on an orange kick here lately, and it’s weird because I have never really cared for the color orange, but now I absolutely love it! Do you or anybody else here know where I could get that fabric? It’s in your last picture posted, on the bottom. Thanks, and can’t wait to see your finished project ๐Ÿ™‚
